New Member from Minnesota

New member, old rider here. I've been riding bikes for around 20 years, since I was 16.

My current ride is a 2009 YZF R1, love it to death, ride it every day I can and as long as our MN riding season allows. Wanted to finally join a forum since I have settled down in one location for awhile and I have time to do more of my own work on the bike.

Hope to learn and help others in any way I can!

Not every legend is a myth, some are flesh and blood. Some legends walk among us, but they aren’t born, they’re built. Legends are made from iron & sweat, mind and muscle, blood and vision and victory. Legends are champions, they grow, they win, they conquer.

Thanks! Okay, yes, I suppose old rider wasn't the best choice of words. I just meant I've been riding for a while, haha! I live down in La Crescent, by La Crosse WI.
